Read from January 17 to 19, 2012

As usual, Didion delivers on the memoir front with a touching and searingly introspective lookback on her daughter's life and death, as well as her relationship with her. Didion is operatic in her writing, laying out several anecdotes or thoughts in the beginning and then weaving them around into an emotional symphony. I wish I could relate to her inner struggles that Didion vividly paints, but I am glad that I am fortunate to not have to.
